With Stephen King on everyone’s radar these days, it might be the perfect time to revisit one of the best film’s based on his work.

Take a look at all the info on these releases below and mark your calendars for November 7th and 28th.

 

Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now he’s writing to stay alive.  On November 28, 2017, Scream Factory proudly presents the iconic thriller Misery in its definitive home video release. The 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray comes complete with a new 4K restoration from the original film elements and hours of bonus features, including new interviews with director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride) and special effects artist Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead).  
 
Novelist Paul Sheldon doesn’t remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. He doesn’t remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. But he will never forget Annie Wilkes.
 
James Caan and Academy Award® winner* Kathy Bates star in the bone-shattering thriller Misery, adapted from the novel by Stephen King. As Paul (Caan) recuperates from his injuries in the secluded cabin of his benefactor Annie (Bates), he begins to discover that beneath the seemingly kind and naive exterior of his self-described “number one fan” lurks a mind that is cunning, unhinged, and bent on keeping her favorite writer as her personal prisoner for the rest of his “cock-a-doodie” life … and Sheldon must engage his savior-turned-captor in a battle of wills that will push them both to the brink.
 
Adapted by two-time Oscar®-winning screenwriter William Goldman and directed by Rob Reiner, Misery is considered by critics and fans (number ones and others) to be among the greatest horror-thrillers of all time. Revisit this classic tonight with your friends … after all, Misery loves company.

From John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), comes the perilous – and hilarious — tale of Ed Okin (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park), an insomniac who discovers that his wife has been having an affair.
Unhappily married, unsatisfyingly employed and unsurprisingly depressed, aerospace engineer and insomniac Ed Okin needs to get away. But getting away proves to be no easy feat when Ed drives to the airport and a gorgeous smuggler, Diana (Michelle Pfeiffer), leaps his car, pursued by four murderous killers! Chased across the landscape of a “truly mythical” (Time Out) Los Angeles, Ed and Diana will encounter an endless array of intriguing nocturnal characters (played by a bevy of famous directors) and a charming English hitman (David Bowie). But will they escape their relentless pursuers? The only way to find out is by diving Into The Night!

·         NEW Restored Master
·         NEW John Landis: “Back Into The Night”
·         NEW Jeff Goldblum: “Requiem For An Insomniac”
·         Award-Winning Documentary B.B. King Into The Night
·         Original Theatrical Trailer
